Interesting point about Wyevale possibly having financial difficulties. I must stress that I haven't heard anything to indicate that, but I've never seen the plant areas so empty. As has been said, almost nothing apart from winter bedding around.
The upside was their recent sale. I got a Hozelock drip watering system down from £74 to £20. Lord knows how long it had been kicking around in the back of the warehouse as the box was very faded. It still had the security strap around it and everything in there when I got home. Went back a couple of days later and the few remaining ones had been reduced to a fiver. I had no use for any more and couldn't think of anybody who might want one. Shortly after that I saw a very happy gent will the last 4 piled on his trolley.
Like them or loathe them, they would be missed if they did close as they do at least have decent stock levels of bedding etc in the Spring, and as I mentioned before, we have very few other plant suppliers in the area.
